The pink route starts with the red and yellow routes towards the dam, but stays on jeeptrack 90% of the time. After passing Current and the beach area you will follow the banks of the lake towards the chapel. At the chapel you’ll pass through a small dip right on the edge of the lake.. Around the halfway point the trail turns away from the lake and passes the Hot air balloon field and turns left at the 4x4 track, Not long after passing the foresters house the trail turns on very short singletrack through a Bluegum forest. Now comes the only substantial climb on the trail up to the gate. From here you turn on to the driveway and follow the paved road down to base.
